'84 Camaro

I currently have 15 in. wheels on my Camaro. I found a guy trying to sell a nice set of 18 in wheels that I believe will fit. I've seen a few Camaro's in different magazines that look pretty nice. Does anyone know what would be a good size to run on the front and back? I'm curious because the 15's on the front scrub now when I make a sharp turn. I'm assuming that the lowe profile tire will compensate for some of the height I have on my tires now. I want a lower profile look but I want to keep the wide profile.

15" inch wheels on an ´84 Camaro should´nt scrub.
Unless maybe you have the wrong sized tires, if so how did
you get them past the TüV (yearly German car inspection)?

No, I definitely dont want that DONK look. The Germans are a little more freidnly now when it comes to inspections. As long as wheels dont stuck out too far from under the wheel well, your good. Their big thing now is noise polution. NO flowmasters.

According to my book, Camaro Performance Handbook by David Shelby
the 3rd gen Camaro can accept a 15" diameter wheel up to 9.5" wide with a 10" tire.
Backspacing 4.5" to 4.75".
BUT as always measure before you buy.
